Barefoot Landing

Developed by Hill Partners, Inc. and local partners, Barefoot Landing is a spectacular seaport village situated around a 20-acre lake and adjacent intracoastal waterway. The project quickly integrated into the fabric of North Myrtle Beach and consistently attracts over 7 million annual visitors.

Subsequent efforts involved property management and upgrading the merchandising of the project, including the addition of Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, Chico’s, White House l Black Market, and Birkenstock to complement House of Blues, Alabama Theatre, Greg’s Norman Australian Steakhouse, and Dick’s Last Resort.

Streets of Mayfair

Hill Partners, Inc. was retained by an institutional investor to take over the operations and leasing of the project with the strategic plan of stabilizing Streets of Mayfair. The Hill Partners’ team successfully remerchandised the asset from an unstable entertainment-oriented center with Planet Hollywood and others into a lifestyle center with the addition of Banana Republic, LOFT, Benetton, Bath & Body Works, and a number of other specialty retailers. The upper floors, which were previously occupied by a Regal Cinema, were later converted into office and the project was sold.

The Shops at Highland Village

As one of the premier properties in North Dallas, The Shops at Highland Village consists of 321,631 square feet of retail and 30,000 square feet of office space. The Shops at Highland Village is the first lifestyle center to serve South Denton County.

The unique lifestyle center offers an exceptional mix of apparel for men, women and children, items for the house, restaurants, office tenants and entertainment for the entire family – and currently is home to AMC Theatre, Barnes & Noble, Corner Bakery Café, Chico’s, White House/Black Market, Banana Republic, Soma Intimates, Victoria’s Secret, and many others.

In the downturn, Hill Partners was engaged to create a strategic plan to stabilize the asset by Regency Centers. Hill Partners successfully restructured leases, shored-up co-tenancy, and repositioned the center’s consumer marketing program, eventually leading up to a successful disposition of the asset.
